You're welcome. One more thing. They talk about an arrow on the side of the current sensing coil. Do not read that to say that the arrow is "pointing" at anything. They are just referring to the side that has the arrow symbol molded into it. It has nothing to do with the arrow pointing anywhere. (Verified with Tech Support.)

In case you haven't installed yet, you can get high stranded #6-3 wire that is much more flexible and easier to work with. It's more expensive, but you usually only need a foot or 2.

Got it installed Friday afternoon just before our weekend camp out! Love it!!! Works like a champ and I love being able to monitor my amperage usage! Thanks for the advice and the install went without a hitch... Plus gave me a chance to wet/dry all the debri and sawdust left in the space by the factory! Peace of mind is worth every penny!

Ain't that the truth!! I installed mine yesterday, dry fit and trim until you get them right.

Hey Weezer! I’m pretty sure that the 30WIKSS does not come with a surge protector. This is what I got for mine, 30-amp Surge Protector with Voltage Protection - Progressive EMS-HW30C - Surge Protectors - Camping World. When we take delivery of ours in December sometime I’ll let you know how the install goes.

Glad someone brought my thread back current. We're putting "Francis" in the shop next month for some warranty issues. I'm thinking we'll just pay to have one installed while she's there....unless the person who told me there is one on board will follow through and SHOW ME where it's located.

The first thing I'd check is under the sofa, passenger side. More than one of us has found that the sofa leg falls into an incorrectly cut wiring access hole in the floor, causing the sofa leg to pinch the wires against the rough edge of the hole.

The power jack goes out if you allow rain on it...keep it covered with a bucket or something! It's downright stupid that something built for the outdoors isn't water tight.

The day/night shades are easily broken. We have the one on the forward wall of the dining slide on the floor.

The vacuum breaker (?) on the dometic toilet has gone out. We're currently using a small bucket to fill/flush the toilet. (I hate the height of this toilet, feel like I need a foot rest.)

Plan on placing small sections of "pool noodle" on the drawer handles of the dresser in the bedroom. Without this the handles on the dresser rub the drawer facings under the bed when the slide is in (and vice versa).

Don't get me wrong, we LOVE our TT! The floor plan is absolutely perfect for us. We have the platinum package and absolutely love the upgrades. The only change we'd make is the amount of outdoor storage. The only basement storage is the one that goes underneath the bed slide.

The island sink in this kitchen is awesome and we love the Corian counter tops.

Oh, and watch out for rusting bolts on the steps. We're requesting replacement of those as well when she's in for warranty work. We bought the last of May and the rust started showing up within 2 months. Not acceptable.

Thanks for the info. My wife is an aircraft quality assurance inspector and I have same kind if background so the dealers head Is going to be spinning when we are done with the pdi . I'll check for the hole, the power outlet will get a dryer vent velcroed over it when ever we hook up, and I expect some appliances to fail. As for the rust...we plan to use spar varnish on every single exposed fastener head we can find, no air= no rust. It will take some work but we should be able to get it right before we go full-timing in a couple years.
